Off the Page with Dana!

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing an off-the-page project.

The rich burgundy, bright burnt orange and deep brown colors in the Cracklin' Rose collection are perfect for Autumn themed projects.


I used the Cracklin' Rose 6x6 Paper Pad and coordinating Cracklin' Rose Stickers to fill the charms on this necklace.




I sealed the charms with a light coat of glaze and left the necklace to dry overnight. I'm looking forward to dressing up my favorite fall ensembles with this piece!

Mini Album Inspiration with Rhonda + Giveaway!

Tuesday greetings to you!  It's Rhonda here today to host the blog for you and share my Want2Scrap Lattice Mini Album project with you. 

As you know, all month long we have partnered with our friends at Want2Scrap. I decided to use my album to showcase our photos from our Mount Rushmore trip this summer.


To start, I coated each page with white gesso, then used our PowderPuff Chalk Inks to color them. 


The Mardi Gras Border Bling was a fun accent to my quote here.


My first pages, I used some scraps from June Club Q here.


I maintained the same photo mats and theme through the album to create harmony.


A few gems adds just the right extra touch...


This design is very clean and simple and lets the photos tell the story.


I cropped a photo of the main entrance monument here and used it along with a date stamp.

I hope you've enjoyed the mini album inspiration and that you've enjoyed our Want2Scrap cross promotion this month.

Mini Album Inspiration with Barb!

Happy Monday everyone! Barb here to host the blog!

I absolutely love being part of the Quick Quotes Design Team! Their products are fabulous… so fun and colorful! And when they team up with other manufacturers, it is even more fun!


I was sent this darling Want 2 Scrap Log Cabin Mini Album to work with! How cute is this?! I decided to use Quick Quotes Sheer Joy line along with some Want 2 Scrap Embellishments to complete it!


 
I did a little "rearranging" with the pearl flourish. I wanted to see the pearls on each side of the flower cluster so I decided to cut it up a little. Otherwise, my flowers would have covered it and it was too pretty to cover up! Those fabulous Decorative Pins are also from Want2Scrap!


Quick Quotes has these fabulous Chipboard Die-Cuts with quotes that I used to decorate most of my pages. I scattered some Pearls around the page!

I decided to go with the natural chipboard for the background of this page. I left a lot of room for photos on these two pages!



I love the blues and oranges in the Sheer Joy line! All of the papers and embellishments were perfect for this mini!

Beautiful Things Mini with Thandar

Hello, This is Thandar coming up to host the blog today.

We are having a cross promotion event with Want2Scrap this entire month and it was a lot of fun. I would like to take a moment to thank our friends at Want2Scrap for providing us with amazing goodies to play with.

As the last of the cross promotion projects, I would like to share with you a mini album that was created using Want2Scrap chipboard mini album. I had a lot of fun adding colors and layers to this products. Blings and quotes added a touch to this mini. At this time, I did not touch any of my art mediums and keep it simply to inking and layerings.

Here is what the cover looks like:

I used Sheer Joy Paper Collection along with quotes from Calypso paper collection. Mini Album was such a hard work to finish since it has multiple pages. But at the end, I feel a sense of accomplishment at the end. Lets flip through this Mini page with me.

Road Trip Mini with Donna!

Hello fellow scrappers, Donna here today to host the blog for you!

Today I would like to share a Road Trip mini album I made using Quick Quotes and Want2scrap products. Right below is the cover, I decided to use black accents and the charms were on my key chain at one, but became to bulky. On this page I used Baggage Claim and Sheer Joy, which will be coming soon to Quick Quotes.

 
The first page of album has the route we took. I took the map from the internet and colored in the roads we took. With Want2Scrap Rhinestones - Turquoise I marked our starting and stopping points. I also used a chipboard piece from the Be Bold collection.
 
 
This was the Bed and Breakfast we stayed it, again using the Rhinestones and this time I used Sheer Joy Diecut chipboard.
 
 
This page was very simple, just added one of my favorite pictures and some Want2Scrap Beautiful Bling Border - Mardi Gras 
 
This page I made a pocket to hold various other pictures and added some chipboard and paper tags.
 
 
Using Sheer Joy paper and I made a sun beaming out with the Want2Scrap Amber Rhinestones . Also I wanted to mention that every page with inked with Baja Blue Powderpuff Ink from Quick Quotes. This ink has such a gorgeous turquoise, I love it!
 
 
Here again, I used the Sheer Joy paper along with chipboard to create this page of some pretty views we had on a morning walk along the beach.
 
 
Of course every vacation is about good dining, and this vacation was no exception.
 
 
The final page I made another pocket to hold receipts and misc. ephemera we collected along the way. I used a piece of vellum to create the pocket, glued and inked along the edges, added some bling and some Quick Quotes quotes. Easy peasy!

Mini Album Inspiration with Cathy

Hi Quick Quotes and Want2Scrap Fans! Cathy here today hosting the blog.

I have a fun mini album to share with you, or maybe it's a journal, as there are no photos. I never seem to have enough photos of the same event to create a mini album, so I decided to created a journal to document my journey this year.

On the back of every page that you see here, is just some ledger paper that I can write thoughts, quotes and other inspiring bits. I used my favorite Quick Quote's collection, Baggage Claim and lots of gorgeous Want2Scrap products.

















I had so much fun with this. I hope you love it too!

Memories Make Me Smile Mini with Susie

Hello and welcome!

Susie here today and we are continuing our month long partnership with Want2Scrap!  Today I would like to share a mini-album full of pictures that just make me smile!


The pictures in this album are ones that I snapped of my daughter years ago.  She was playing on the swing set in the back yard and she was so happy and carefree!  She was swinging so high at one point I thought she might actually take off and fly! *wink* I like to remember everyday moments like that...and smile!

To decorate the cover I started with a sentiment from the Serendipity Words & Phrases Strip, cut circles out of Dream Big 100, and layered on Turquoise Bling and a butterfly from Want2Scrap:

 
I custom colored some seam binding to tie onto the binding rings:


I used Blue Moon PowderPuff Chalking Ink on one side of the seam binding and Caribbean Blue on the reverse side of the seam binding.  I love the variegated color you get!


On the inside cover I included more circles. I inked the edges with Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalking Ink before I added more bling from Want2Scrap and some alphas:


On this page I used Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink through the Arrows Stencil from Want2Scrap:

 
You can see here how I cut this vellum so that I could use it to frame the photo:

 

Here is a close up of the stencil work:

 
These pages were covered with Sheer Joy 200 and include another sentiment from the Serendipity Words and Phrases strip:

 

These pages were covered with Dream Big 200:

 

On the last 2 pages of the mini-album I pulled out Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink and the Chevron Stencil from Want2Scrap:
